New Brunswick — Canada's Most Enjoyable Province 

NEW BRUNSWICK, the largest of the Mari- 
time Provinces and the closest of this trio of 
eastern provinces of the Dominion of Canada 
to the New England States and also to Central Can- 
ada, is an unspoiled vacationland of 28,000 square 
miles — almost equal to the combined size of the 
States of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hamp- 
shire and Vermont. 

To the holiday seeker New Brunswick's great 
appeal is its unspoiled freshness and its freedom from 
commercial exploitation of its natural attractions. 
While the number of vacationists visiting New 
Brunswick increase annually as its diversified 
recreational attractions become more generally appre- 
ciated, exclusive resorts are rare, and the attractions 
are largely of the simpler kind. 

Described by many visitors as Canada's most 
Enjoyable Province, New Brunswick is the most 
easily and quickly reached natural playground for 
the vacationists of New England and the other 
Eastern States, as well as affording the nearest and 
most convenient seaside for those from Central 
Canada seeking an Atlantic Coast holiday. Bounded 
on three sides by salt water, it has an extensive coast 
line of more than 600 miles with beautiful sandy 
beaches and many fine harbors. 

New Brunswick offers everything the visitor in 
search of rest, recreation and sport may desire — 
entrancing scenery, bracing climate, improved motor- 
ing roads, real big game hunting, the finest of bird 
shooting, the best of Atlantic silver salmon, trout, 
bass and other sport fishing, and seaside lake and 
forest resorts where accommodations range from the 
simple farmhouse, the homely cabin or lodge on the 
shore of a lake or stream or a cottage at the beach 
to the large modern hotel with golf, tennis, riding 
and dancing. 


There are more than 12,000,000 acres of woodland 
in which moose, deer and bear abound and game 
birds and fur-bearing animals are plentiful. Although 
one of the first sections of the continent of North 
America inhabited by the white man. New Bruns- 
wick is, literally speaking, a vast game preserve today 
and it has attractions for the nature lover and the 
devotee of outdoor life that are nowhere as accessible 
to the sportsman as here. 

New Brunswick's 12,000,000 acres of woodland, its 
hundreds of rivers, lakes and streams teeming with 
Atlantic silver salmon, trout, land-locked salmon, 
bass and other game fish are open to the canoeist^ 
^amera-hunter and camper. Organized camps for 
. oys, girls and adults are located at a number of 

points, and almost every town has its Tourist Camp. 
A large and efficient corps of registered and licensed 
guides place their services at the disposal of visiting

Welcome to New Brunswick 

THE Government and the people of the Pro- 
vince of New Brunswick cordially welcome 
tourists from the Sister Provinces, the United 
States and other countries and invite them to enjoy 
the recreational opportunities of this unspoiled 

This booklet has been designed to cover some of 
the questions which usually confront the tourist. 
More detailed information is contained in other 
publications, which are obtainable upon application, 
and special information will be gladly furnished 
those who desire it. 

This Bureau is the chief of a network of Tourist 
Information Bureaux located at all important 
centres, and embracing the entire Province. 

The services of this Bureau are yours for the 
asking. We welcome the opportunity of serving

sportsmen; they are expert woodsmen and canoe- 
men, as well as good companions. Accommodations 
for hunting and fishing parties are provided by the 
guides, or the visiting sportsman can make his head- 
quarters at a conveniently located hotel, inn or farm- 
house and motor, canoe or hike to where he wants 
to fish or hunt. There is a complete network of 
hotels, inns, boarding houses and other suitable 
accommodations spread all over the province along 

the railways and the most travelled motoring roads. 
In general the contour of New Brunswick is 
rolling, becoming more rugged in the northern part 
where peaks — the highest of which is Mount Carle- 
ton — rise to a height of 2,700 feet. The country is 
watered by numerous rivers, and while there are 
hundreds of lakes, none are of large size, the largest 
inland body of water in New Brunswick being Grand 
Lake, off the Saint John River somewhat less than 
fifty miles from its mouth. The climate is tempered 
by the adjacent ocean waters and the summers, 
while warm and bright, are remarkably free from 
prolonged dry spells and from hot nights. 


New Brunswick is easily and quickly reached 
either by automobile, train or steamer. Excellent 
motor roads enter the province at many points along 
the Maine and Quebec borders where this province's 
main trunk highways connect with the most popular 
traffic carriers in the East. Fast, luxuriously 
appointed through trains, such as The Gull, which 
leaves Boston each night at 9.30, have made New 
Brunswick just overnight from Boston or Montreal, 
and a few extra hours from New York or Toronto 
and other centres. Comfortably equipped steamers 
are available for those who prefer the sea trip to Saint 
John, while excellent motor roads bring the visitor 
into New Brunswick by scenic routes and cover all 
the developed sections of the Province. 

The highway system of New Brunswick includes 
11,600 miles of improved roads of which 1,400 miles 
are main trunk roads and the remainder secondary 
and by-roads, which serve as feeders. This extensive 
system makes it possible to reach by motor every 
section of the province except that which is still an 
undisturbed forest and New Brunswick is also well 
served by the Canadian Pacific and Canadian National 


Article 355.- Residents of the United States returning from

ST. STEPHEN is the southern gateway to New Brunswick and the Maritime Pro- 
vinces. United States Atlantic Highway No. 1, which extends from Florida right 
up the coast to and across the State of Maine, ends at Calais; across the International 
Bridge, which'spans the St. Croix River No. 1 Highway markers are in evidence — • but 
they designate New Brunswick No. 1 Highway, the numbering system thus being kept intact through 
to the City of Saint John, where No. 1 Highway converges with the Trans-Canada Highway No. 2, which 
number is carried through East to Nova Scotia, or North to Quebec. 

More than 13,000 tourists' automobiles entered New Bruns- 
wick via the Calais-St. Stephen International Bridge last season, 
securing permits from Canadian Customs officers stationed at 
the end of the international bridge for extended stays for touring 
in this and the other eastern provinces of Canada. Once again, 
in 1929, St. Stephen was the most largely patronized port of 
entry for tourists entering the Maritime Provinces. To pro- 
perly serve the large number of visiting motorists entering New 
Brunswick at St. Stephen the New Brunswick Government 
Bureau of Information and Tourist Travel operates a Free 
Official Tourists' Information Bureau adjoining the Canadian 
Customs House and Immigration Office, where highway maps, 
official literature and all kinds of touring information will be 
found available free and without charge of any kind. 

Some tourists make the mistake of hurrying through St. 
Stephen and away. There is much to see at St. Stephen and a great deal to entertain and interest tourist 
visitors. St. Stephen has good hotels, it has some outstanding industries, including one of Canada's lead- 
ing confectionery manufacturing plants, it has imposing public buildings and there are good fishing and 
hunting territories nearby. 

St. Stephen and Calais are at the head of navigation on the St. Croix River. A few miles down the 
river is what is declared to be the best natural harbor in America; and perhaps, with two or three excep- 
tions the best in the world, for it is six miles in width and twice that distance in length. Sheltered and safe 
and easy of access, it could accommodate the entire navies of Great Britain and the United States. 

Nearby is historical Dochet's Island, where Champlain and his adventurers spent a disastrous winter 
more than three hundred years ago.

THE Islands of Passamaquoddy Bay are among New Bruns- 
wick's potential tourist attractions. The three larger islands 
of the group are Grand Manan, Deer Island and Campobello. 
Grand Manan does not properly belong to this group as it lies 
out beyond the confines of Passamaquoddy Bay. Its nearest 
point on the mainland is the State of Maine, and its earliest settlers 

were Loyalists from that 



State. It has always been 
and is today a favorite 
hunting place of the Pass- 
amaquoddy Indians as 
Porpoise and Seal are 
very plentiful, as are Wild 
Ducks and Geese. It is 
also a favorite nesting 
place for Sea Gulls. It 
is becoming more and 
more popular each year 
as a vacation spot. Its deep sea fishing, its rugged coast and its bath- 
ing and boating make it an ideal spot in which to spend the summer.

Deer Island lies practically in the centre of Passamaquoddy Bay. It is the home of the Sardine, and is surrounded by numerous small islands. Among the attrac- 
tions are the great Whirlpools, cff Deer Island Point. This Island is noted for its rugged beauty and is a wonderful fishing place, favored by the followers ot Walton. 

Campobello. the most b auiiful and historic of all the Islands, appeals to all the senses. Nowhere else can be found scenery more superb than the rockbouna 
shores of Campobello which alternate lor thirty miles with quaint coves, clean, cool beaches gleaming between overhanging crags, weather worn and mystic with loik 
lore and legend; ideal little firths where the sea gets in a quiet game of pool to the infinite rattle of pebbles. . . 

Inland are Large undulating plateaus of dense birch and fir forests skirted by idyllic glades, all intersected with sparkling streams filled with trout there is no 
more beautiful panorama on this continent than is opened up about a mile from the summer home of the Hon. Franklin D. Roosevelt, Governor ot New York. 3ta c - 
irg on the brow of a hill there opens up a vista of Lake Glensevern, a fresh water lake, just beyond which is a beautiful sandy beach, five miles in length, and Deyona 
that the great Bay of Fundy — a panorama beyond description. 

Campobello is known as the one spot on the North American continent immune from mosquitoes, black flies, humidity and hay fever. 


ST. ANDREWS-BY-THE-SEA is the Newport of the North. In 
proportion to its size and population it contains more magnificent 
summer homes and attracts more prominent people than any resort in 
Canada. The Algonquin Hotel, one of the finest of the Canadian Pacific's 
chain, is one of the magnets attracting visitors to St. Andrews. There 
is also Kennedy's Hotel and other well conducted and comfortable inns 



anybody's requirements can 
be well met. Every comfort, 
every sport — tennis, riding, 
bowling-on-the-green, bowl- 
ing alleys, sea-bathing, yacht- 
ing, sea-fishing, as well as stream and lake fishing and hunting in season, 
may be enjoyed from St. Andrews. Men who take their golf seriously come 
and stay all summer for Scotland hasn't the only St. Andrews famous for 
its golf. Cool sea air, even in midsummer, dew-moist greens, firm and 
springy all summer long ; and two courses — a beginner's nine and a champ- 
ionship eighteen both with rolling fairways, the pine-fringed rough and 
the hill-and-island holes that make every round a new test of skill. 

The Dominion Biological Experimental Station, Minister's Island, 
the ancient Blockhouse, the Auld Kirk with its quaint pulpit and the 
Court House are points of scientific and historic attraction while annu- 
ally the Charlotte County Folk Lore Carnival features a period of 
interest in the development of the Cottage Craft of the Province which 
was instituted at St. Andrews. 


Typical Fishing Scene on Fundy Coast. 

ALONG the Bay of Fundy shore as No. 1 Atlantic Highway carries the tourist 
from St. Andrews-by-the-Sea toward Saint John there is no more entrancing 
spot than St. George, a happily located, prosperous town at the mouth of the 
Magaguadavic River. 

Right in the centre of the town — ■ five miles from the sea — the waters of the Magaguadavic 
tumble over a rocky eminence and rush down a narrow gorge, making a picture of rugged beauty 
that arrests the attention of visitors and furnishes power to drive the prospering industries of 

this up-to-date little town. 

Scarcely beyond the limits of the town is Lake 
Utopia, one of the prettiest spots in this or any other 
country and one of two lakes on this continent whose 
outlet is also its inlet. This phenomenon forms a 
storage for the surplus waters of the river, with which 
it is connected by a natural canal, during the freshet 
season. Lake Utopia is famous for its trout, which 
are unusually large, clean and gamey and possess a 
flavor epicures pronounce the best. 

There are community bungalow camps at St. George, 
Muskequagum Park and at Lake Utopia, as well as 
motor camping sites, and with Lake McDougall, as 
well as other lakes and streams there is the best of 
fishing and the adjacent forest is alive with moose and 
other big game, this territory extending back to the boundaries of the Lepreau Game Refuge. 

Between St. George and Saint John one passes the wonderful beach at New River; the Poco- 
logan stream and Lepreau River, all good trout fishing waters; the Hydro development at Mus- 
quash, Spruce Lake, the source of West Saint John water supply, and the road to Lorneville, that 
quaint fishing village on the coast, which resembles an old world village, perhaps somewhere in 
France. The visitor should note the weir fishing all along the Bay of Fundy coast at Black's 
Harbour, Beaver Harbour, Mace's Bay, Dipper Harbour, and Chance Harbour. 


SAINT JOHN, the commercial metropolis of New Brunswick 
and one of Canada's Atlantic winterports, was founded by 
that intrepid body of Loyalists who landed there in 1783. 
Parrtown was the name those three thousand Loyalists, 
who came in twenty ships, gave their new home, to honor Gov- 
ernor Parr; but in 1785 the name was changed to Saint John 
and it became the oldest incorporated city in British North 
America. Many years before Champlain had discovered the 
great river Saint John, at the mouth of which the city of Saint 
John is situated; that was on Saint John the Baptist Day, 

June 24th, 1604, 
and he gave the river 
the name it has ever 
since retained. Since 
then Saint John's his- 
tory has been full of 
romantic incidents and 
half the charm of this Loyalist City will be lost to the visitor who 
does not revive its romantic historical background. Saint John 
is naturally of great interest to people from inland points. The 
sea is at her feet and wherever you go you look out upon the 
broad expanses of the Bay of Fundy. Its water front is every 
year becoming more and more a picture of modern port develop- 
ment. On the Courtenay Bay side of the harbour there is now 
in operation what is said to be the largest dry dock in the world. 

The reversing Falls, at the mouth of the Saint John River, 
constitute one of Saint John's major tourist attractions. In 
order to fully appreciate this phenomenon, two visits — one at 
high tide and one at low — should be made to the 450-foot 
gorge through which the waters of the river must pass to reach 
the harbor. When the tide is out, occasioning a drop of 26 feet, 
an incredible volume of water rushes down, plunging, roaring 
through the gorge and leaving a confusion of eddies and whirl- 
pools in its wake. But six hours later Fundy 's Tu.e thrusts back 
the advance of the river — thrusts and pushes and triumphs, 
squeezing in between these tortured rocks, and, for a distance, 
actually running "uphill." There are many other points of 
interest in and about Saint John. These are more fully dealt 
with in publications obtainable from the Saint John Tourist 
Association, No. 44 King Square, Saint John, at which address a 
modern up-to-date Tourist Information Bureau is located 
under capable management. 

The Old Spar-MalTe~r orTEay of Fundy Coast. 

THE diversification of scenery and recreational attractions New Brunswick offers 
visiters is well exemplified by the territory included in the illustrations presented 
on this page — immediately east and south of the city of Saint John. There is the 
territory along the Bay of Fundy coast at St. Martins, a beautiful seascape and landscape 
of notable beauty, then there is also the marvellously attractive Kennebecasis valley, which leads through 
Rothesay and on to Hampton and then through Sussex, en route via Salisbury, to Moncton, taking you 
through a country entirely different yet as magnificent and fresh in views of hills and valleys as you have 


One of the golf courses nearby Saint John overlooks the 
beautiful Kennebecasis river — the Riverside Club. It is only 
a few miles from the city and is an excellent course; the scenery 
is that of high purple hills and glistening stretches of river. 
Rothesay, a charming summer colony, is situated on the shores 
of the Kennebecasis nine miles from Saint John; all along the 
Kennebecasis are summer colonies. There are many locations 
still untaken which would make delightful situations for summer 

Rothesay is the home of Major-General the Hon. Hugh H. 

McLean, K. C, V. D., LL. D., Lieutenant-Governor of New 

Brunswick, and His Honor's beautiful home and the entrancing 

grounds of The Grove, now Government House, constitute one 

of the show places of Rothesay. 

Such scenes as that of the old spar-maker at work at St. Martins fascinate visitors who take some of 

the delightful motor drives from Saint John along the Bay of Fundy coast. A glimpse of the Bay at almost 

any point, with its coolling tide always on the move, brings never-ending pleasure to visitors who watch 

the breaking waves on the more rugged parts of the coast-line. 

Long sandy beaches offer hard-to-resist opportunities for bathing and visitors who have not tried deep 
sea fishing have yet to enjoy a sport which offers many thrills. 

Along the Bay of Fundy coast are inns, cabins, lodges and farm-houses offering comfortable accommo- 
dations for those who can stay to enjoy the vacationing attractions. 



SUSSEX, the shire town of Kings County is 
the centre of a rich agricultural country, 
largely given to dairying. Prosperity ^and com- 
lort are in evidence on all sides as^one 'motors 
along the Trans-Canada Highway en route from Saint 
John to Moncton — Sussex is also - blessed "with rare 
scenic beauties as well as other tourist attractions which 
make it a popular centre. Decorcy Lake, which is pictured 
on this page, is only one 
of many waters in the 
vicinity of Sussex where 
trout abound, streams 
where brook-trout rise to 
the fly being scattered all 
over the territory. Then 
again the district nearbv 
Sussex has become one of 
the best moose and deer hunting territories in New Bruns- 

At Apohaqui and other locations in~the Sussex'district 
there are mineral springs near the roadside. 

Sussex is the location of New Brunswick's chief Military 
Camo grounds and annuallv the various militia units 
gather at Sussex for their training camps. The Provincial 
Rifle Ranges are also located there and the provincial and 
occasionally the Maritimes championship matches are 
shot there.' The Sussex Golf Club's course adjoins the 
military camp grounds too. 

Sussex has delightful accommodations for tourists, in- 
cluding up-to-date over-night cabins and a well maintained 
auto camp and many commodious homes are thrown open 
to visitors;" there is also, of course, good hotel accommo- 

In the vicinity of Sussex are a number of silver fox farms 
and the biggest ranch of this kind in the British Empire 
is further along en route to Moncton — at Salisbury. 

WITH rugged grandeur of rock-girt shore and mountain peak and pastoral beauty of 
broad and verdant meadow with the shimmering waters of the Bay of Fundry beyond, 
Albert County offers a charm of scenery which gives it front rank in diversified 
tourist attractions in this or any other province. 

Added to the beauty of scenery, the visitor to Albert County also gets what to city dwellers 
is priceless — the exhiliarating salt-laden breezes that blow in from Fundy and make a tem- 
perature which, even with the midsummer sun, is almost perfect. For the enjoyment of these 
natural attractions Albert County offers all the transportation facilities and suitable accommo- 

Jations that visitors may desire. 

Branching off from Trans-Canada Highway at 
Penobsquis and following No. 14 New Brunswick 
Highway through Albert County via Alma to 
Moncton, one motors through a territory which 
offers good fishing in season and later some of the 
best moose hunting on the North American con- 
tinent. At Alma, where you first reach the Bay 
of Fundy coast, you are nearby the location of 
Camp Ho-Dan-Age, a boys' camp which has been 
established at Point Wolfe for some years, and near 
Elgin is Camp Hermit Thrush for girls. This drive 
through Albert, Riverside, Hopewell Hill and up 
Shepody Bay has many attractions, but perhaps 
the chief is the Rocks at Hopewell Cape at the con- 
fluence of the Petitcodiac and Memramcook rivers. The Rocks are only half a mile from the 
main highway at Hopewell Cape and a good auto road takes visitors right to the shore. Fan- 
tastic columns and caves — all nature's handiwork — astonish strangers with their grandeur. 
Fifty feet above the base of the rocks there is a beautiful picnic ground, surrounded by beaches 
and ever-greens, equipped with a pavilion and restaurant to cater to the tourists' needs. 

Along the Albert County coasts are many beautiful beaches suitable for bathing while else- 
where majestic hills look down on rocky gorges where the waters rush and whirl. In addition 
to the railways there is a bus service which furnishes a convenient means of transportation 
from Moncton down the main shore road through scenery of entrancing beauty. More moose 
have been taken out of Albert County by hunters the past few years than from any similar area 
in this Province or elsewhere in Canada and some excellent lodges, cabins and other equip- 
ment for hunting and fishing parties have been provided by the guides of the district. 



MONCTON is considered by many people who know the Maritimes as 
possessing the highest average prosperity of any place in'Eastern Canada. 
It is the second city of size and commercial importance in New Brunswick and 
is the transportation centre of the Maritime Provinces. It is essentially a 
railway city where the Canadian National Railways have concentrated their Atlantic Regional 
Headquarters and owing to its strategical position it is called "The Hub of the Maritimes." 

Moncton was named in honor of Honorable Robert Monckton, soldier and statesman, who 
received his commission in the British Army at 15, 
and when but 25 was elected a member of the British 
Parliament. In 1752 he was sent to Nova Scotia 
and later became Lieutenant-Governor of that pro- 
vince. Soldiers, under his command, began the 
British occupation of Saint John in 1758. He was 
Commandant of the British forces at Fort Beausejour 
and second in command under General Wolfe at the 
siege of Quebec. 

The population of Moncton is about 21,000 and, 
in addition to being an important manufacturing and 
distributing centre, it is surrounded by an excellent 
farming country and a territory rich in mineral resources 
scarcely touched, including oil and natural gas. 

The "Bore" in the Petitcodiac River at Moncton 
is a most curious phenomenon, which attracts attention of many tourists. One sees in the dis- 
tance a silver-crested wave creeping over the dark brown flats, and soon at our feet an irresistible 
and turbulent wall of water from three to six feet in height sweeping past, churning up the mud 
and stones in its fury. The Bore is caused by the inrushing tides of the Bay of Fundy, which 
rise to a height of fifty-six feet, forcing a great volume of water through the comparatively narrow 
neck of the Petitcodiac River. The Riverdale Golf Club, which has a nine-holes course, is con- 
venient to the city. 

Moncton has one of the finest motor camping grounds in New Brunswick, shower baths, 
laundry facilities and all other conveniences. It is near the western boundary of the city.

k* ^ Bathing Beach at Point/du 



The Picturesque East 

WESTMORLAND County's east coast, extending to where Cape Tormen- 
tine reaches out to within nine miles of Prince Edward Island, is an ideal 
vacationland as Nature made it. 

Superb scenery, invigorating atmosphere, unsurpassed facilities for salt 
water bathing, swimming, boating and fishing and the absence of dangerous surf and treacherous 
undertow form a combination of attractions which bring many visitors to the Northumberland 
Strait coastal towns, villages and resorts. Among the most popular districts is Shediac, with 

Point du Chene and other popular nearby beaches, 
while following the coast around Cape Tormentine are 
Port Elgin, Baie Verte and other attractive places. 
Shediac has, however, the largest summer colony and 
ly/P CT'IV /[ADT A NTT"^ tnere and at Pomt du Chene wm doubtless be extensive 
\Y ELiiJ 1 [VII )l\\ ,/AI\l J developments for the tourist traffic; there are no fogs, 

no humidity, no excessive tides, an abundance of sun- 
_____ _ shine, without excessive heat, and cool nights. 

[()T ) NIT^ y East oi Moncton, en route to Prince Edward Island 

V-'Vy v_v 1 N 11 or Nova Scotia by either the trans-Canada Highway 

or by Canadian National Railways, it is a pleasant 
journey. At Memramcook there is the Roman Cath- 
olic University of St. Joseph's College, which has been 
the centre of higher education for Acadian boys for 
generations and from which many of them have passed to successful professional and business 
careers throughout Canada. Here the country levels out to the famous Marshes of Tantramar, 
immortalized by Charles G. D. Roberts in one of his poems. 

Thus the Maritime Penitentiary buildings, huge massive stone structures at Dorchester, 
loom up alongside 80-square miles of these famous Tantramar Marshes and Sackville also over- 
looks these marshlands. Sackville is a typical college town the buildmgs of Mount Allison 
University rising from a symmetrical hilltop and the country for miles around It has 
also some notable industries, bright stores and Sackville Country Club has a 9-holes Golf course. 
Far away across the marshes there is a rise from the broad level of the meadow This is the 
site of the former Fort Beausejour, where the curtain rolled up first on the final drama of the 
French and English struggle for the possession of America. It has lately been taken over by 
the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada as a National Park. 

THE popularity of the route traversed by Main Trunk Highway No. 11 along the 
East Coast of New Brunswick is bringing back to Kent County the prosperity it 
once enjoyed as a rendezvous for tourists. 

The Northumberland Strait is protected from the dangers of the North Atlantic 
by Prince Edward Island and the coast of Kent County, thus protected from storms 
and dangerous surfs, offers many opportunities for visitors from inland cities to enjoy 
an ideal vacation at the seaside. Thus the popularity of Buctouche is growing each 
year and Richibucto, with its Riverpark Golf Club, is regaining the place it occupied 
in popular favor as a watering place before modern means of transportation caused 

its beauties and attractions to be neglected. 

All along the Kent County coast the scenic splendor of 
Highway No. 11 is marvellously beautiful to visiting motorists. 
The fishing fleets may be seen running off to the fishing 
grounds, the blue waters of Northumberland Strait sparkling 
in the sunlight. Prince Edward Island is plainly visible, 
only twelve to fifteen miles away, and all along the coast 
will be found camping sites and picnic grounds with oppor- 
tunities for enjoying fresh lobsters, clams and oysters in 
season. At various locations' there are canneries, warehouses, 
and plants of large corporations which export lobsters and other fisheries products to the Upper 
Canadian, American and European markets. 

The appeal of the historic attracts many visitors annually to Rexton, a few miles from Richibucto, 
the shiretown of Kent County, on Main Trunk Highway No. 11, where a memorial cairn has been 
erected in honor of the late Rt. Hon. Andrew Bonar Law, who was born there and who was the first 
Canadian to become Prime Minister of Great Britain. The Bonar Law homestead and the Kirk 
where his father preached are also points of interest at Rexton. 

At St. Charles, near Richibucto, there is a melodious and beautiful chime of bells which have 
been immortalized by the late George V. Mclnerney's poem, "The Bells of Aldouane." 

At St. Louis de Kent, seven miles from Richibucto, a lovely pastoral village with imposing church 
and convent edifices, there is a facsimile of the celebrated shrine of Notre Dame de Lourdes, a perfect 
reproduction including the beautiful statuary. 


'EW territories combine so many tourist attractions as to be found on the Mira- 

michi — a territory which comprises the beautiful valley of one of the most 

wonderful rivers of this Province and which includes the vast expanses as the 

river at its mouth widens into the Bay, which affords opportunities for. sport and 

commerce that are nowhere excelled on this continent. 

Thus we find the Miramichi, famous for its lumber and its commercial fisheries, 
equally as famous as for its angling, big game hunting and water fowling. 
Along the Miramichi there are probably better undeveloped tourist attractions than can be 

found anywhere else so accessible. Bathing, boating, golf, 
deep sea fishing and sports of all kinds may be enjoyed 
and there are ideal locations for summer homes. 

Newcastle, the shire town, and Chatham, situated within 
a few miles of one another on opposite banks of the Mira- 
michi river, are the principal centres of the Miramichi 
district and make good outfitting places for hunting and 
fishing parties and are the headquarters for tourists coming 
to the Miramichi. Up the Miramichi, on the Sou'west 
and the Nor'west branches, on the Sevogle, the Clear- 
water, the Renous and many other tributaries there are 
fishing and hunting camps and on the lower Miramichi 
there are equally good fishing and hunting territories on the Bartibog, the Neguac, Black 
River, the Tabusintac, the Napan and other streams, while Miramichi Bay, Wishart's Point, 
Neguac, Point Escuminac, Bay du Vin and Tabusintac are some of the best locations for 
shore birds, there being no better water-fowling district anywhere on this continent, according 
to well qualified experts. 

Visitors who want to spend a delightful vacation can select no better territory than the Mira- 
michi. There are many delightful auto drives, the Miramichi Golf Club is conveniently 
situated between Chatham and Newcastle and has a fine course on which visitors are invited 
to play and there is good steamboat service on the lower Miramichi river and Miramichi Bay, 
while the Ferry Frances Ullock provides excellent service for crossing the river at Chatham.

BATHURST, the first town in the Maritime 
Provinces to be the scene of the manufacture 
of newsprint paper and j ustly proud of its accomplish- 
ments, combines beauty and business and recreational advantages with industrial opportun- 
ities in a manner which makes it doubly interesting to visitors. 

Beautifully situated at the head of the Bathurst Basin on Bay Chaleur, with its smooth 
sand beaches at Youghall and other points that are unex- 
celled for bathing, Bathurst is also adjacent to some of the 
best big game hunting and salmon and trout fishing terri- 
tories in New Brunswick. Bathurst is the outfitting 
centre for parties wishing to whip these rivers, streams 
and lakes, or to hunt big game and shore birds or to enjoy 
deep sea fishing. Competent guides and complete outfits 
may be engaged at Bathurst, which is a suitable base for 
operations as it has some of the finest hotels in the Mari- 
time Provinces and public spirited citizens take a friendly 
interest in the welfare of visitors. 

Many delightful days can be spent by visitors motoring 
from Bathurst throughout Gloucester county. For instance, the motor drive following Main 
Trunk Highway No. 11 along the eastern and then the north shore of the Province offers 
coastal scenery that is nowhere excelled. Then again Tetagouche Falls, the Grand Falls on 
the Nepisiguit and Nigadoo Falls are all attractive to visitors, while trips to Caraquet, Poke- 
mouche, Tracadie, the islands of Miscou and Shippegan are all entertaining and pleasantly 
accomplished over good motoring roads. There are no more picturesque fishing villa^s on 
the Atlantic coast than many of the beautiful spots in Gloucester County. 

The history and tradition loving visitor can find much of interest in Bathurst. Jacques Cartier visited 
Bathurst and so did Nicholas Denys, one time Governor of the Company of New France for the whole coast of 
the Gulf of St. Lawrence to Cape Rosier, and here he built a fishing station and a strong fort, the foundations of 
which may still be seen with many relics that proclaim its martial character. Before it had grown into a full sized 
town and became Bathurst, in honor of the then Colonial Secretary, Lord Bathurst, the French had called the 
place St. Peters. 

Bathurst is situated on the main line of Canadian National Railways and enjoys the finest of train services 
which makes the whole Bay Chaleur district now just over-night from Montreal. 


CAMPBELLTON is the northwestern gateway leading into New 
Brunswick from the beautiful Metapedia Valley, it is the out- 
fitting centre for salmon and trout fishing parties going to the 
Restigouche and other famous waters; located at the head of Bay 
Chaleur, it is the chief centre of a district which affords a diversification 
of recreational attractions seldom so effectively combined in one location. 

Baie de Chaleur, the name 

which the French gave it, 

— -,. yi — i means "Bay of Heat," and 

I Hr* the temperature of the water 

is higher in Bay Chaleur than 

r> A R/innri T ^rr\\] at any other part of the whole 

fAMrnh ION Atlantic coast. Along its 

V_^A1V11 UL^L^L^, 1 Wl X ghores are m . les of the finest 

sand beaches — clean, hard 
sand where the tides do not 
leave a ripple-mark, sheltered 
by great groves of pine and 
spruce. At Dalhousie, New 
Mills, Charlo, Jacquet River and elsewhere along the Bay Chaleur 
coast there are miles of this sand beach. 

The Restigouche Country Club, with its nine-holes Golf course, 
overlooks Bay Chaleur, and at New Mills is located Camp Bonaventure, 
where American and Canadian boys spend the summer in a well-super- 
vised and thoroughly organized camp. This camp has been highly 
successful and the wonder is that there are not more such institutions 
established in this territory and that some of the many ideal locations 
for large modern bungalow camps and summer hotels have not long 
before been taken up and developed by private enterprise. Certainly 
no other district offers the same diversified attractions to the sports- 
man and the tourist so easily accessible to Montreal and other large 
centres of population. 

The Campbellton Tourist Association, P.O. Box 36, will gladly give 
all information and supply literature regarding this wonderful vaca-

EDMUNDSTON is the first important community reached by 
motor tourists entering New Brunswick from the Province of 
Quebec via the Trans-Canada Highway. It is a busy, hustling 
manufacturing town, located at the conflux of the Saint John and 
Madawaska river, and the home of bleached sulphite mills, paper 
board mills and other manufactories of the Fraser Companies, 
Edmundston has good hotels, a fine golf course and is a pop- 
ular centre from which 
fishing and hunting part- 
ies go to the lakes and 
streams of a territory 
which is a veritable sports- 
men's paradise. Capable 
guides are obtainable and 
good accommodations are available. Edmundston is also a suitable 
centre for outfitting for a canoe trip down the Saint John River. 
Four railways give Edmundston excellent train services. 

St. Leonard, which is the junction point for trains leading to the 
Restigouche River's famous salmon waters, twenty-five miles down 
the Saint John River on the Trans-Canada Highway, No. 2, is 
another popular overnight stopping place for parties motoring into 
New Brunswick from Quebec. It has good hotel accommodations 
and is the centre of a good fishing and hunting territory.

VICTORIA COUNTY is rich with attractions for visitors'to" New 
Brunswick. Motorists travelling along the Trans-Canada Highway 
invariably spend some time at Grand Falls. There the greatest 
natural water power in Canada east of Niagara Falls — and the most 
beautiful — has been harnessed without destroying its rare beauty. 

Grand Falls now has the largest hydro-electric plant in the Maritime 
Provinces and, from the intake 
above the catacact to the power- 
house below, the largest water- 
pressure tunnel in Canada runs 
directly under the centre of the 
town. In the aerial view here- 
with the main dam may be seen 
at the left while the power 
house is at upper side of lower 
basin at upper right of picture. 

The Tobique Valley is not 
only rich in its agricultural pro- 
duction possibilities, but it is 
one of the most famous terri- 
tories on this North American 
continent for sportsmen with its salmon, trout and togue fishing and its 
big game hunting. There are comfortable hotels at the various towns and 
villages and there are overnight cabins and tourists' camping grounds at 
Perth, Andover and elsewhere, while along the Tobique River there are 
many famous lodges and camps, including Gulquac Lodge at Oxbow and 
other lodges at the salmon pools and beauty spots. The Aroostook Golf 
Club opens its course to visitors. 




One of t 

The picturesque Litt 


BETWEEN Woodstock and Fredericton the Trans-Canada Highway, 
No. 2, follows the Saint John river valley and for natural scenic grand- 
eur there can be nothing to surpass this portion of New Brunswick. 
Seven miles below Woodstock a cairn erected by the Historic Sites and 
Monuments Board of Canada marks the location of the old Fort Meductic 
and nearby, on the bank of the river, is the old Indian burial ground. 

At what is now the village of 
Meductic, twelve miles below Wood- 
stock, a highway leads off to the 
right to Skiff Lake, where there are 
more than forty summer cottages, 
good fishing for land-locked salmon 
and lake trout, canoeing, boating 
and great areas of forest land where 
game abounds. Skiff Lake is five 
miles long, two miles wide and 
contains over thirty islands, while 
other lakes are connected in a great 
chain which affords wonderful sport. Lodges and camps can be hired, and 
the popularity of Skiff Lake grows annually. 

One mile north of Skiff Lake stands an ancient Shrine, said to be the most 
unique and primitive place of worship to be found anywhere in America today. 
It has been called the Portiuncula of the New World, for pilgrims are 
annually attracted from all over this Continent to this antique little church. 
All evidences of modern worldly improvements are absent and the unique 
primitiveness of this little chapel is carefully preserved. 

Proceeding down the Saint John river valley via the Trans-Canada High- 
way, visitors will find many places of interest and many opportunities for 
reaching convenient fishing streams and lakes. One of the beauty spots is 
Pokiok Falls, where the Gorge offers attractions and where there is a lodge 
with comfortable cabins available.

FREDERICTON has all the interest for tourists which 
every Capital City has, with its Legislative buildings and 
offices of Provincial Departments; and it also has other 
attractions for visitors, being the seat of the University of New 
Brunswick and a Cathedral city as well. 

Fredericton has its points of historic interest and it has also 
been renowned in the world of literature as the houme of Bliss 
Carman, Charles G. D. Roberts, the DeMilles and other fam- 
ous personages. Almost directly across the Saint John River 

is the old French Fort 


built by Villebon in 
1692; Fredericton was 
then a small Acadian 
settlement called St. 
Anne's Point. It has 
been the Capital since 
1788, two years after 
New Brunswick had been created a separate province 
Fredericton is one of the chief outfitting centres in New 
Brunswick for hunting and fishing parties going to Cain's 
River, the Upper Miramichi, the Keswick and many other 
territories that are famous with sportsmen. Five miles up 
the Saint John River is Hartt's Island salmon pool. 

Fredericton has a sporty golf course, a famous race course, 
tennis clubs and all the attractions of a modern community.

THE shortest and most direct route for motor traffic 
through New Brunswick from the New England 
States or Quebec to Moncton and other points in 
the southeastern section of this province and on to Prince Edward 
Island and Nova Scotia follows No. 9 Highway from Fredericton 
to Sussex. This route traverses a picturesque and beautiful 
section of the interior of New Brunswick as it follows the Saint 
John River through Sunbury County then skirts Grand Lake, the 






water the province 
boasts of, crosses the 
Washademoak and 
passes near the head 
of the Belleisle before 
cutting down into the 
Kennebecasis valley at 
Sussex. Grand Lake is twenty-nine miles in length, has long sandy 
beaches and offers wonderful opportunitiesforestablishment of boys' 
and girls' camps, bungalow camps and other accommodations for 
summer visitors. Robertson's Point, Sypher's Cove, Princess Park 
and Cumberland Bay are some of the most attractive locations. 
The Narrows, where No. 9 Trunk Highway crosses the Wash- 
ademoak, is another popular resort section with good accommodations 
for tourists. The Grand Lake and Washademoak territory is a 
veritable sportsman's paradise, there being many good fishing 
streams and forests which abound with moose, deer and bear as well 
as offering especially good duck and other game bird shooting. 
Two railways and sevcal steamship lines 
prrovide good transportation service.

Canadian Customs Regulations 
For ut the_Admission of JTourists 

For Twenty-four Hours. 

Automobiles may be entered at any Canadian Port 
for a period not exceeding twenty-four hours by the owner 
surrendering his State license card, which is handed to 
him on his return journey. 

For Sixty Days. 

On arrival at frontier Customs port of entry, the owner 
of the automobile shall report at Customs and apply for 
a permit. The Collector, if satisfied that the applicant 
for a permit is a non-resident of Canada and a temporary 
visitor therein for purposes of health or pleasure only, 
and that the permit is for the use of the owner or a mem- 
ber of his immediate family, may admit the automobile 
without formal entry, and may issue a tourist permit in 
triplicate for a period not exceeding sixty days. 

For Further Extension of Thirty Days. 

Should a tourist who has been granted a sixty-day

he may apply therefor to any Collector, who, upon being 
satisfied as to the bona fides of the applicant as a tourist 
and that the car will be used by him only for purposes 
of health or pleasure, may extend the permit for a further 
period of thirty days. 

If a tourist who is granted a permit desires to retain 
it in Canada for a period in excess of ninety days, he may, 
before the expiry of this permit, present the same to any 
Collector, and on compliance with the regulations be 
granted a permit for a period not exceeding six months 
from the date of the importation of the vehicle. The 
bond of a guarantee company authorized to do business 
in Canada in a principal sum equivalent to duty and taxes 
payable on the automobile, or a cash deposit of a like

purposes of the journey and present comfort and con- 
venience, are passed free without entry at Customs. Forty

found in the baggage of a traveller (not being a resident of 
Canada) may be delivered free of duty, but any quantity 
in excess thereof is subject to the ordinary provisions of 
the Tariff.
